Featured Public Project grants announced for ArtPrize Eight


GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.– ArtPrize announced four artists receiving $55,000 in grants on Wednesday through the ArtPrize Featured Public Projects Program.

DeWitt Godfrey, W/Field Workshop, Christopher Schardt and FriendsWithYou will be the four artists awarded with $10,000-$15,000 grants after being  selected by the ArtPrize Arts Advisory Council. An open call was held in February 2016.

In addition to the grants, all artists were given supplies and services from sponsors in construction and shipping and engineering to help bring their entries to Grand Rapids.

All four artists will also be in the running for the big $500,000 public vote and juried prized during ArtPrize Eight. The four projects will be installed at  Calder Plaza, Ah-Nab-Awen Park, the Grand River and the Gillett Bridge.
